Join Our Mission: Transform Lives as a Wings for Widows Volunteer

At Wings for Widows, we understand that the journey through widowhood is one of the most profound challenges life can present. The sudden shift in reality following the loss of a spouse can leave individuals feeling lost in a sea of uncertainty and grief. It is during these times of profound change that our mission—to guide and support new widows and widowers through their financial and emotional turmoil—becomes a beacon of hope.

Volunteering with us is not just about giving your time; it’s about making a tangible difference in the lives of those navigating the

complexities of loss. Whether it’s the financial strain of adjusting to a single income, the logistics of relocating, or the emotional task of planning for a future they hadn’t envisioned, your contribution can light the way forward for someone in their moment of need.

We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities, each with the potential to change lives—including your own! By joining our community of compassionate volunteers, you become part of a larger movement dedicated to providing stability, understanding, and hope to the widowed.

Explore the ways you can contribute to our mission below and take the first step towards making an impactful difference. Your skills, empathy, and willingness to serve are invaluable to us and to those we support. Together, let’s help change lives in the wake of loss.
